How To Make An Emoji Wall Decor Diy

In this age of emojis, I thought it would be nice to make a wall décor using an emoji. Digital meets handmade kind of thing.

I’m going to stick to the common easy to understand happy emoji. Seriously, sometimes I don’t understand all the other emojis. Like when I received a watermelon and dollar sign beside each other then repeat that in 5 sets, what in the world does that mean? Hmmm…that watermelons are expensive?! Or I should sell watermelons to make money, go figure.

There seems to be no end to the addition of new ones. I’m a very visual person but the expressions that some emojis leave me are beyond my comprehension. Or it could be my age. I’m glad to belong to the generation were real chatting happened in person.

Anyway, I still found a way to make a handmade version that is easy and fun. Make one over the weekend.

 

MATERIALS:

Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Sponge brush
Wooden frame
Black acrylic paint
Paintbrush
Scissors
X-acto knife
Glittered adhesive paper
Cardboard
Glue gun
Pencil

 

First, get some scrapbook paper with a dominant black print. I chose a damask design for my diy. Then get some wooden frame. I just used an old wooden frame that I found in my recyclables in my craft room.

Next, paint the edge of the wooden frame with black acrylic paint.

Cut the scrapbook paper to the correct size of the frame’s base.

Apply a generous amount of Mod Podge on the base of the frame.

Place the cut scrapbook paper, press and smooth out that paper to remove all air bubbles.

When that dries up, apply another coat of Mod Podge on top of the scrapbook paper and let it dry.

Get something round and trace that on cardboard. Cut out the circle and paint it with black acrylic paint.

Then use glittered adhesive paper for the emoji. Trace the cardboard cut out on the back of the adhesive paper.  Draw circle for the eyes and draw a smiling mouth.

Use an X-acto knife to cut out the eyes and mouth.

Peel off the paper backing of the glittered adhesive paper and attach it to the painted round cardboard.
